CBF/DREB1 (C-repeat-binding factor/dehydration responsive element-binding factor 1) genes encode a small family of transcriptional activators that have been described as playing an important role in freezing tolerance and cold acclimation in Arabidopsis. To specify this role, we used a reverse genetic approach and identified a mutant, cbf2, in which the(More)
The C-repeat-binding factor (CBF)/dehydration-responsive element-binding factor (DREB1) proteins constitute a small family of Arabidopsis transcriptional activators (CBF1/DREB1B, CBF2/DREB1C, and CBF3/DREB1A) that play a prominent role in cold acclimation. A fundamental question about these factors that remains to be answered is whether they are(More)
Arabidopsis CBF genes (CBF1-CBF3) encode transcription factors having a major role in cold acclimation, the adaptive process whereby certain plants increase their freezing tolerance in response to low non-freezing temperatures. Under these conditions, the CBF genes are induced and their corresponding proteins stimulate the expression of target genes(More)
Antioxidant activity (AOA) assay-guided chemical analysis, using a rat pancreas homogenate model, of aerial parts from Eysenhardtia subcoriacea, led to isolation of the new compound subcoriacin (3-(2'-hydroxy-4',5'-methylendioxyphenyl)-6-(3''-hydroxymethyl-4''-hydroxybut-2''-enyl)-7-hydroxycoumarin) together with the known substances: (+)-catechin,(More)
